Emergency Cesarean after Low Amniotic Fluid

Today’s guest is Gayleen Peters who went in for a check-up around 37 weeks and realized she basically had no fluid left. She was told she’d need a cesarean that day but then had to wait several hours for the OR to open up. Her baby arrived safely but did have to spend some time in the NICU and she discusses that experience as well.
